WATCH THIS: Richard Linklater on ’80s Jewels including DRUGSTORE COWBOY, THEY LIVE, WINGS OF DESIRE, and more

For the past few years, we’ve been fortunate to have AFS Founder & Artistic Director Richard Linklater curate his “Jewels in the Wasteland” series at AFS Cinema. Encompassing the entire 1980s, the series focuses on highlighting the best of the decade, from veterans like Godard to newcomers like Gus Van Sant. These are not just film screenings—Jewels in the Wasteland also includes an introduction and post-film discussion by Linklater. In anticipation of our next chapter of the Jewels series (beginning May 8 with LOCAL HERO), we’ve now published the videos from the 2017 chapter of the series, including DRUGSTORE COWBOY, THEY LIVE, ISHTAR, among others. Enjoy these and don’t miss out on the upcoming lineup.
